Geffen Playhouse has announced the full cast for its West Coast premiere of “Power of Sail”, written by Paul Grellong and directed by Weyni Mengesha. The cast includes Hugo Armstrong as Frank Sullivan, Amy Brenneman as Amy Katz, Emmy and Tony Award winner Bryan Cranston as Charles Nichols, Donna Simone Johnson as Quinn Harris, Tedra Millan as Maggie Rosen, Seth Numrich as Lucas Poole and Brandon Scott as Baxter Forrest.
Distinguished Harvard professor Charles Nichols finds himself in hot water after inviting an incendiary white nationalist to speak at his annual symposium. His colleagues are concerned, his students are in revolt, but Charles is undeterred in his plot to expose and academically thrash his invited guest. This profoundly relevant new play by Paul Grellong examines the insidiousness of hate disguised as free speech and the question of who ultimately pays the price.
